Value-Based Licensing

Get the features you want when you need them with flexible licensing

Solid Edge Value-Based Licensing allows you to choose to add on specific capabilities you want when you need them. This flexible licensing option – available through your Solid Edge XaaS subscription – gives you instant access to powerful tools, including Generative Design Pro, Point Cloud Visualization, Electrical Routing, PCB Collaboration, Advanced PMI, Simulation, and Solid Edge XpresRoute. With a flexible token system, users can easily mix and match add-on products, as needed.

Design outsourcing work is very dependent on the customer’s situation. With the monthly subscription, if the outsourced work increases in the future, then the number of monthly licenses can easily be increased based on the work amount or, alternatively, the licenses can be reduced by the decreased amount. We believe that this flexibility is a great fit for our work.
